Usually I try to have some pictures that are somewhat related to what's going on (like holidays) but without being too kitsch or banal or painfully thoughtless. Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to do that this week. I could easily walk outside my room right now and take a photo of one of the cats playing with an ornament that is hanging from a beautifully lit tree. But why now?
On our trip into town to see family, my griflriend and I stopped to get something to eat and use the restrooms. When we parked in the parking lot we noticed this worn down and abandoned house about 40 meters away.
I stare at it intently and say, "I've got to get pictures of this for....."
"For your blog?" my girlfriend interrupted.
Which was then confronted by my retort, "Yes. My blog. And because it's beautiful."
Which it was.
So we went in for a snack, used the restrooms, then I went over to this house to take a few pictures. Unfortunately by the time I got there the sunlight was leaving in a hurry so they didn't turn out that well. My instincts started to bring me closer to the house, wanting to find a way in and see what I could discover. Or what could discover me. But alas, we were losing time and had to make it to our destination while already being 2 hours behind.
But I promised I would return to this house with better lighting and a better camera. It winked at me, then gave a slight nod.
Merry Christmas, everyone.
